Windsor

More Stuff That’s Gone

I was going through some old photos, (these were taken in July 2002) when I stumbled across these shots of a small cluster of houses in the City Centre West lands that were long ago demolished. True to the Windsor way, the lands today remain vacant… These houses were located in the yellow box on the Google Earth view above. I’m pretty sure they were located on the Chatham St. side.

A view of the back yard. Remember these photos were taken in the early days of digital photography, my poor camera didn’t even have a zoom… Hence the occasional crappy angle.

It’s hard to see in this shot, but there is a bit of century old trim poking out at the peak of this one… This house would have been on the corner of Chatham and Caron.

The middle house.

The end house located against the alley.

Redevelopment my ass. Seven years later it’s still a vacant lot. A victim of the temporary Casino land speculators.
